  • Renato Ratti Barbera Barbera d'Alba Torriglione 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This vintage is more powerful, has more body than the year 2004 which we have tasted before. It has a great fruity taste with some spices and a lovely fresh taste. This wine is superb to light Italian dishes.http://winesworld.net/wine-e.aspx?velg=Italy&v2=2259 Read More

  • It's late here in Alba and today was a very busy day with the early morning tasting focusing on the wines of La Morra, Verduno and Castiglione Falletto.
